Jessica Simpson shows off her weight loss in Roland Mouret: cute or dishonest?

These are some photos of Jessica Simpson in NYC yesterday, where she was the first guest on Katie Couric’s new daytime talk show. CB and I were debating Jessica’s general appearance, and whether or not she looks like she’s been lying about her weight loss – I tend to think she has genuinely lost most of her baby weight, but that weight loss progress is being hampered because Jessica keeps playing fast and loose with the numbers. Jessica claims she’s only 10 pounds away from her pre-baby weight – which I will believe only if she’s talking about her boob weight.

Anyway… when I’m at the gym, I just listen to music on my iPod and stare mindlessly at the bank of TVs in front of me, trying to guess what they’re discussing. Thus, I was able to catch part of Jessica Simpson’s big “body debut” on Katie Couric’s new show yesterday. Since I wasn’t listening, all I could judge was the body language and facial expressions of the two women. My read: Katie was going out of her way to be extra-sacchrine, and Jessica was mindlessly repeating her Weight Watchers talking points and her orchestrated “un-truths” about her pregnancy and her weight loss. It’s good to know I was right about all of it, because just glancing through the coverage of the interview… that’s exactly what happened:

Jessica Simpson’s post-baby fitness regimen is still a work in progress, but the bubbly entrepreneur is optimistic about finally shedding her pregnancy weight, she told Katie Couric Monday.

“During pregnancy, I didn’t really think about it,” she told the talk show host of her expanding figure. “I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke my whole entire stomach would go down but that did not happen. All the weight did not come out with the baby!”

Simpson, who acts as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, has already lost an impressive 40 pounds since giving birth to baby Maxwell Drew Johnson in May. A big part of her progress has been in not just changing habits, but her entire relationship with food, she explained.

“You have to track every bit, and you can’t get away with the bites because they add up,” she said. “You have to be completely honest with yourself, and I think just creating that relationship of honesty with yourself is so good.”

During her pregnancy, the 32-year-old starlet admitted to succumbing to cravings for sweets, most notably a concoction called “slutty brownies,” made up of cookie dough, oreo cookies and brownie dough baked together.

Add to that a love for Tex Mex, anything fried and barbecue, and Simpson admits that her diet during her pregnancy was anything but healthy.

“Can’t beat Velveeta,” she quipped at one point during the show as Couric chatted with her Weight Watchers coach. But even at her heaviest — Simpson said she weighed 170 pounds when she posed nude and pregnant for Elle magazine in April — the singer said she would pointedly avoid the negative press.

“I’ve been pregnant for three years!” she joked of the way the tabloids have made fun of her yo-yo weight. “I definitely don’t Google my name. I try to avoid it completely. But I still subconsciously know that the talk is going on so I think that every day that is a struggle for me. I understand that it sells magazines and stuff … but I wish I could get a cut!” she laughed.

[From The New York Daily News]

Ah, I see. Now she claims that the “170 pounds” figure was when she posed for Elle’s April 2012 issue. You know what? Jessica was probably only six months pregnant when she posed for Elle. Which means there are three months’ worth of hawt dergs, slutty brownies and Velvetta completely unaccounted for. Now, it’s perfectly possible that Jessica is being completely honest with her Weight Watchers program people and she doesn’t want to get into the nuts and bolts of “This is what I weighed in May, this is what I weighed in June” etc. In which case… sure, she doesn’t have to do that, of course. It’s her business. But it becomes a little bit sketchier when she’s playing fast and loose with the numbers while she’s being paid $4 million to promote the WW program. Coughfalseadvertisingcough.

Her dress is Roland Mouret, by the way. It’s not all that great, but it does “mask” her abdomen.

    I feel bad for her back only looking at her boobs.

    • jen d. says:

      I know, right? It looks painful…

    • Amelia says:

      Ditto. How the hell has she lost weight and not got several black eyes for her trouble?
      Oh, quick question – what’s Velvetta?
      I don’t think we get it in GB.

      • Samigirl says:

        It’s a cheese that doesn’t have to be refrigerated (shudder). Very smooth, creamy, quick melting. Doesn’t get stringy or hard when when melted either (like a block of cheddar). We melt it with a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes and mix in some sausage if we feel like it, and serve it with tortilla chips. Fritos are best. It’s a must have for football!

      • daisydoodle says:

        it’s really a “cheese product” meaning not really cheese, but a facsimile of cheese.

      • OXA says:

        It is like if u bought the cheapest waxiest/plasticky cheese slices u can get then imagine that in the form of a solid block.

      • gg says:

        Amelia – You don’t have Velveeta over there because you guys eat actual genuine cheese and real chocolate. The vast population of middle America does not. This stuff is what’s known as “American Cheese”, which is a farce because on the label it’s called a Cheese Food Product, meaning it isn’t cheese. I hang my head in shame for America.

        Velveeta needs to be “refrigerated after opening” or it’ll mold like anything else.

        However, after decrying its mere existence, I do actually use the stuff – but only on the rare hangover days when nothing but unhealthy comfort food will do.

      • TG says:

        As I said in the comments yesterday she is wearing a disguise. That black peplum top and skirt is trying to hide all the fat in her thighs, arms, and middle section. You can see doesn’t look very thin and she must be wearing a ton of spanx or the dress is designed that way but I would say she has another 30 pounds to go before she looks svelte. So that means she is lying about her workouts and her diet. Because if you are only consuming 1200 calerie a day and doing all that workout with Haley Pasternak than the weight has to come off and it clearly isn’t.

        Oops I was going to comment about the velveeta chesse thing so that is why my comment is here. So Amelia don’t buy Velveeta you aren’t missing anything it is one of the bad foods our country consumes.

      • littlestar says:

        Samigirl, my mom used to make something similar when I was a kid – she’d melt Velveeta and salsa together, then we’d eat it with nachos. It was delicious (yep, I’m admitting Velveeta can be damn good haha).

        As for Jessica’s weight loss, I agree that she is not being truthful (I thought that yesterday when I first saw the pic of her in that black peplum style dress). I am a few inches taller than her and weigh 135. If she was supposedly 170 at 6 months pregnant, then she has to be around 150-160 now. I feel bad for even talking about her weight, but girl, stop lying already. I personally feel like it’s making her and Weight Watchers look bad.

      • Annie says:

        We don’t eat any stinking’ velveeta in Wisconsin;)

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        I can’t get with cheese products. You can find awesome cheese shops anywhere, even middle America. Today I discovered Cheesetique-I love a good cheese shop.

        It had all the good shit in it. Yum.

        Velveeta and Spam-America should be ashamed forever!

      • the original bellaluna says:

        A “pasteurised, processed cheese food product” is what the label says, I do believe. You can call it “nasty” for short.

        ETA: As gg noted, it is awesome when nothing but the unhealthiest comfort food will do – I’ve dubbed Velveeta Shells & Cheese “Sin Food,” and everyone in our house knows what that means. ;) (Very high in sodium and fat.)

    • TheEmpress says:

      Just looking at her boobs is making it hard for me to breathe. SIZE UP!

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      ditto. I feel sorry for her knees, too…they’re looking particularly rough.

  2. Bite me aka aniston says:

    And if she removed those horrible extensions am sure she would lose another 10lbs

  3. Debra says:

    Lets face it.
    She is still a chunky monkey.
    She is also very clever and talented having a BILLION dollar fashion business.
    Maybe we should all pay more attention to what she does, instead of what she says.

    • Goofpuff says:

      What she says is important only in it tells you if she can be trusted to be an honest, trustworthy person. I love her shoes and admire hear business sense but I have no qualms about her mouth only opening to lie lie lie like many celebs.

    • Kate says:

      Enough with she is talented and savvy and runs a billion dollar clothing line. Her father, not her, was smart enough to sell her name to Camuto at the height of her popularity. She does virtually nothing except show up for appearances at Macy’s every now and again. She doesn’t design, make business decision, or anything that would require triple digit IQ points. She cashes a check, which I will give her credit, she does very well.

      The weight thing is totally dishonest. If she is 10 lbs from pre-baby weight, then she started at 150. Thats a lot of weight on someone that short.

      Also, that husband of hers has one job, which is to escort her from place to place. He could at least shower, shave and put on a pair of pants.

    • Ashley says:

      Lets face it.
      She doesn’t own BILLION dollar fashion business. She just sold her name for few millions and MAYBE she gets some little part of the profits. She does nothing that’s why she is talking so much.

    • jano1981 says:

      Debra – I think she Has a way to go to really feel good. Bella – she’s 5’2.5″ so am I only D cup size as opposed to her triple H’s or whatever. She looks like I diode when I was about 150-155lbs. And her boobs are adding poundage too. The only thing that gets me is shes trying to tell women these fibs. Come on! :)

      • bella says:

        i was standing nose to nose with her.
        i’m 5’4″.
        trust me…she is no taller than 5′.
        10 lbs. on a body 2.5″ taller makes a big difference.
        she’s teenie…i stand by 140 tops.
        and her chest is huge…it was in March when i met her and seems to have doubled now…poor thing…

      • Koa says:

        Oh Bella, have you been drinking the kool-aid or what? I’ve also seen her in person multiple times and she is nowhere near 140lbs! The only way she’s 140 is if she’s 3 ft tall….she’s easily 160. Sorry, but that’s just a fact AND looking at her with 3 pairs of spanx, peplum, huge hair and bag all trying to camouflage her size!

  4. cmc says:

    Super dishonest. She most certainly has lost quite a bit of weight, but to “unveil” her progress when she’s so far from success (10 lbs my foot!), and to spanx her to death and wear an abdomen-conceiling top, is dishonest at best. That said, she looks cute. I don’t feel sorry for her about the criticism- if you didn’t want people to talk about your weight, then you shouldn’t have signed up to be a spokesperson for Weight Watchers. Simple as that. None of us gave Pink any crap when she took her time to lose weight post-baby, because that seemed genuine!

  5. Launicaangelina says:

    That black dress is ugly! It reminds me of an 80s woman’s power suit.

  6. Brown says:

    Her boobs………. I mean, I have some relatively large boobs, but hers are literally hurting me to look at.

  7. Stef says:

    I think if she got a breast reduction, she would look great. I used to want big boobs for SO long. And then I realized in my early 20s there’s something nice about being able to sleep on my stomach, go running without 3 bras, and just be perky. I mean, no one should get surgery for other’s people’s needs, and Jessica clearly has lost some weight, but if I were her, I think I would definitely downgrade a cup size or two. Her boobs look borderline ridiculous, especially in tight clothing.

    Also, is it just me, or does her fiance look like a combo of Sam from True Blood and Tom Brady? ha.

  8. Jackie O says:

    if she is going to accept 4 million dollars, then she deserves the criticism when she is obviously dishonest about the numbers.

    does jessica and weight watchers think women are this stupid?

  9. amada basura says:

    her weight loss is honest but it is dishonest of weight watchers to unveil her so soon and claim she is close to her pre pregnancy weight. if she is still breast feeding she does need to carry some extra pounds. it is unrealistic to expect anyone to lose that much weight so soon after a pregnancy where mom let herself go. jessica has done a fabulous job losing the weight and will probably lose more. we should focus on her accomplishment and ww dishonesty. 4 million $ doesn’t accelerate weight loss.

  10. Carolin says:

    It is really hard to lose weight I think, weight watchers or not, if you have given birth, breastfeed and stuff. You think about all sorts of things, but not weight loss. I wouldn’t want to be under the pressure of a 4 Million $ contract for sure. That said, I think she already did a good job and now we can leave her alone.

    • bella says:

      i know.
      leave the girl alone.
      i wonder if she’s regretting the deal – well, maybe not at $4m!
      if she’s sensitive at all about the extra pounds, this has got to be difficult given the INTENSE scrutiny the deal has brought her.
      i hope she finds her comfortable weight and is happy in her own skin.
      it’s a journey…
      having said that, she has brought this on herself…maybe she enjoys the scrutiny or thrives on it for incentive? i don’t know…weight, appearance…it’s all so personal…

  11. Bubbling says:

    To me she looks the same minus the preggo belly and styled in a way to slim her out.

    • Me2 says:

      But if you watched she still has quite a belly. I mean…quite. I think they were careful not to catch her from the side. She still looks at least five months pregnant to me. And she was sucked in SO MUCH she could barely move. It was so uncomfortable to watch. I swear I’m not usually so bitchy, but this story is just bringing it out of me. Argh.

      • Bubbling says:

        I know, right?! I was trying so hard not to go in, but b!tch got 4 million for world record in sucking it in and holding it together!

      • Sisi says:

        yeah, did you see the curve of her arms while she was sitting on that couch? She was completely stuck and couldn’t even move her elbows or anything. as if she was wearing a cast instead of shapewear.

      • zinjojo says:

        No kidding! When I first saw her, I thought she must have some serious corsetting going on — beyond just wearing Spanx. But now that it’s confirmed that her dress is Roland Mouret, it’s a given that the dress has a a serious internal structure designed to hold her in (plus she’s probably still wearing a couple of pair of Spanx). It’s what he’s known for!

        Plus, that hair is awful. The fully bleached out blond extensions look is so cheap. She looks so much better when it’s a more natural color with blond highlights.

      • Vesper says:

        I don’t think she has lost much weight at all. She still looks huge depending on what angle u see her from. Even her arms and outline of her thighs are huge. Her weight, considering her height and bone size, probably falls into the obese category.

        As for working so hard to lose the weight, is she? We don’t know how much she exercises, and what she really eats. She admits to caving in to sugar cravings, and she blames it on hormones, instead of taking responsibility for her lack of control. If I were Weight Watchers I’d fire her.

  12. Al says:

    I can’t even focus on her figure. I’m too distracted by her fake orange tan and too-blonde hair…

  13. Bluedog says:

    Her hair looks terrible. Why do some women think plastic-looking white blonde hair is flattering?

    I can’t believe she thought all her pregnancy weight gain was “water.” Is she truly that moronic or does she speak for affect?

  14. samira25 says:

    I believe that Jessica is 10lbs from her pre-baby weight. People seem to forget that she was kind of heavy before pregnancy. Remember the attacks for her mom-jeans at one of her concerts. She would need to lose another 20-30lbs to get back to her Nick Lachey days.

    • Kim says:

      I agree she was heavy before she got pregnant that’s why it seemed like she was pregnant for a year.

    • Me2 says:

      I watched Fashion Star last season (don’t hate, it was entertaining) and I don’t *think* she was preggo at the beginning of that taping. And she was definelty a bigger girl. I don’t think she’s far off from that weight either, but that was overweight to begin with.

    • Vesper says:

      @ samira25:

      “People seem to forget that she was kind of heavy before pregnancy…. She would need to lose another 20-30lbs to get back to her Nick Lachey days.”

      Are u kidding? The woman is so heavy she would probably be labelled as obese by most doctors. She needs to lose far more than 30 lbs to get to a healthy weight.

      And, please don’t even get me started on the people who say size 14 is the average size of most women. Perhaps, in the US where obesity seems to be the norm, but in other parts of the world, size 14 is not healthy unless you are built like an amazon.

  15. DanaG says:

    I think she has way more then 10 pounds to lose and she is hiding it well but it is still hiding. Jessica also has to keep it all for the life of the contract so it could get interesting if she doesn’t.

  16. brin says:

    Hope she uses her money to style herself and her k-fed better.

  17. tru tru says:

    now yall know, Jess will lose those pounds for that $$$$$…hook or crook.

    I read that her parents are divorcing too, I might be late but there is alot of pressure on this chick right now.

    she has lost some but she has 4m dollars on the line, LOL.

    if she got rid of that waste of space, I mean her fiancee, she’d lose about 220lbs, heehee.

  18. Jenny says:

    I would respect her more (not that she wants or needs it) if she was losing weight for her health not for the big bucks contract. She should be about enjoying her child first and foremost, not living up to what the public (especially Weight Watchers) thinks she should look like.

    It is hard to lose weight, no matter what the circumstances, but this “unveiling” is dishonest and phony. She probably can’t breathe with all of the spanx layers keeping her in place.

  19. some bitch says:

    She doesn’t look bad, but DEM BOOBS.

  20. erika says:

    she was genuine durring the ‘katie’ interview. i felt inspired by her after i saw it

  21. Isa says:

    Okay 170 at six months pregnant makes sense.
    If she lost 40 and has 10 to go she gained 50 during her pregnancy. I figured she started off at 140 maybe so that puts her up to 190. Which is still less than what I thought she weighed at the ene but maybe she just looked huge because of the boobs and muumuus as was fond of.

    • yolo says:

      Agreed. Plus, when you are short, 10 lbs actually looks closer to 20. I’m preggers now and have only gained 8lbs so far and I look at least 20lbs heavier at 5′ tall. She prob would have looked better in a more flattering outfit tho and that hair 0.o goodness…

      P.S. Kaiser, your hawt derg gets me EVERY TIME. I’ve got to add that into my vernacular.

  22. says:

    It’s completely dishonest. As is her tv add for WW, where you only see her face.

    Also, someone should tell her that puffing up you hair and wearing it in your face won’t make you look thinner.

  23. Lisa says:

    I give zero fks about her and her weight loss. What drives me insane (and why I am commenting) is when people say she is business savvy and running a successful clothing company. The company may be successful, but she sure as hell isn’t “running” it. That is an insult to real business people who are driven and focused enough to create something. Such people do not spend 90% of their time shopping and yammering o about weight loss and pregnancy.

  24. kitty-bye says:

    urge to grab my boobs ow. Well her outfit is flattering & hair. Her man is not appealing however. I hope it is love with those two. He needs a head & face shave with some hair dye!

  25. lizzi says:

    sorry Jess, you look exactly the same.

  26. sillyone says:

    Good lord look at the size of those knockers! I bet those things enter a room a good 5 seconds before the rest of her body.

    As for the weight loss whatever Jess millions of women give birth every year and take off the weight without being paid to do it.

  27. Carolyn says:

    Hi WW (assuming you have minions trolling forums checking out your investment on Jess)!

    Do you think we’re stupid to believe Jessica can lose all that weight just from counting points? She’ll have surgery at some point in the near future. She doesn’t represent the normal woman and I don’t relate to her at all.

    best wishes from a smart, cynical woman not buying this PR BS.

  28. Ari says:

    It’s not like she was a lightweight before her pregnancy so if she is trying to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight. She is almost there. I know that sounds vapid but I am still waiting for her to go back to her Daisy Dukes :L

  29. Abby says:

    Am I the only one that thinks she looks amazing? I want that dress. I don’t have half that boobage but she looks reallyreally good for having recently had a baby. I hope I look that good post-baby… and I don’t struggle with weight like she does. I have to give her props.

  30. Elise says:

    I watched the interview while feeding my two month old infant. Katie treated her like some fragile flower. I want to like Jessica but she makes it so difficult, and she isn’t being so honest with herself or with the public. She whined about how much pressure is on her – much of which she created with her TMI and CHOOSING to make it public discourse by accepting the WW deal when she has EVERY MEANS to keep it private and her own business. I’ve struggled with emotional eating, have done WW, and now am working on the last 10 lbs of pregnancy weight, am petite and fluctuate like JS, so I *get it*. But with her resources, she needs to GROW the HELL UP and deal with it. She has little emotional maturity, no perspective about how lucky she is to have help and more choices than most women. She definitely hit 200+ – no question – just be honest! I was 176 the day I gave birth and she is seriously talking around the truth, if you’re going to be a spokesperson then please share and be open with us. Jennifer Hudson was more honest and I think that’s why she’s succeeded with WW in the long term. Jessica said two things that struck me: a) she did not exercise at all during her pregnancy. wow. b) her doctors told her she had alot of water and she just assumed it would come out. How can she have so little self-awareness, ability to ask questions and seek answers, or take on even a bit of responsibility? She is infantile. I think she looks fine now, her appearance isn’t what irks me, it’s her actions.

    JS makes her entire shtick about her appearance and weight, aww-shucks-I’m-every-woman-so-buy-my-products. How about deal privately with your weight and the obvious underlying issues?

  31. scarlett says:

    It is more likely that she tipped the scales at around 200 pounds. She just appears very overprocessed especially the overly bleached hair.

  32. NM6804 says:

    Never get sick of this.

    “I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke my whole entire stomach would go down but that did not happen. All the weight did not come out with the baby!”

    So were her doctors saying something else but she just heard what she wanted to hear? Very unclear. Then again, that’s her intent probably. Is she also implying we’re supposed to believe all her weight was just in her stomach? How big did she think that baby was going to be? Surprised she didn’t ring up Guiness World Record to get a deal from them *eyeroll*

    “You have to track every bit, and you can’t get away with the bites because they add up,” she said. “You have to be completely honest with yourself, and I think just creating that relationship of honesty with yourself is so good.”

    I don’t think you bite. You gorge honey. You could’ve done that during pregnancy if you cared so much.

    Yeah, so, honesty…How’s that going for you Simpson? Maybe people forgot, but your Weight Watchers deal came before the birth so you obviously DIDN’T think only the baby was make you balloon up.

    During her pregnancy, the 32-year-old starlet admitted to succumbing to cravings for sweets…

    Her weight was an issue before her pregnancy. Was she pregnant then too? Don’t blame the baby, blame yourself. Honesty and all ;)

    Add to that a love for Tex Mex, anything fried and barbecue, and Simpson admits that her diet during her pregnancy was anything but healthy.

    Where all all those people who tried to defend her by saying we didn’t know what else she ate. Maybe it was healthy. Hmmm, about that: maybe not.

    the singer said she would pointedly avoid the negative press.

    Translation: not wanting to see the truth and maybe live healthier thus missing out on using her weight gain for profit.

    But I still subconsciously know that the talk is going on so I think that every day that is a struggle for me. I understand that it sells magazines and stuff … but I wish I could get a cut!” she laughed.

    You are getting a big cut. And all because of that press you refused to read.

    And what big struggle exactly? Sitting at home, working out and getting paid millions for it. Poor everyday woman, you! Some only have to endure paid work, family responsibilities, household chores, unemployment, bills and debts…

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      ITA and I take back anything positive I ever said during her pregnancy.

      The weight was coming out with the baby? Simpleton, it wasn’t just your belly that was fat. No respect for someone who feeds their child inside of them like that.

      And thanks again to everyone enforcing what I said yesterday. That’s Camuto’s line with her name on it.

      Ugh. She looks awful, the hair, the orange, the stuffed sausage look.

    • bluhare says:

      I feel vindicated. I got so much crap when I posted she was fat and letting herself go during her pregnancy, I avoided her threads. Ahhhh. . .

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Hi Bluhare-
        I think people get more outraged about women sh*tting on pregnant women for putting on extra weight when they can’t help it versus someone like Simpson who openly admitted that she ate garbage while she was pregnant and then feigns ignorance when she’s left 40 lbs heavier post-pregnancy.

        So that’s the difference-there are women who gain a lot of weight during preganancy while still eating healthy and no, it’s not fair for us to criticize, because every woman’s body responds to pregnancy differently. But when JS is openly talking about eating buttered Pop Tarts and then she acts like Derpy Hooves and pretends she doesn’t get why she’s overweight then THAT’S what annoys people. That and the idea that a $4M WW contract may have been in the works for her and could have been a motivating factor to gain extra weight/let herself go.

      • mayamae says:

        bluhare –

        I was right there with you, except I was attacked for defending those who were attacked.

        The best part? Some of the posters who were the most vicious to us are now criticizing Simpson as well.

      • bluhare says:

        OriginalKitten: I only commented when Simpson herself was quoted about the pop tarts and other crap she was stuffing into her mouth, and still got laid into. I even said that she needed to think about the baby as she was eating so unhealthily.

        mayamae: And I thank you for defending me!!

      • Theoriginalkitten says:

        @bluhare-I avoided a lot of the JS posts so I probably never saw your comments but I would have been right there with ya if I had seen them!

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Bluhare, I humbly offer my apologies for defending this idiot. I too thought maybe she was having an indulgence once in a while. It seems now we know she was feeding that poor child a steady diet of chemicals and high fructose corn syrup.

        I was wrong, you were right and I will make it up to you.

        At least that is what my husband says.

        Seriously, her comments having me SMDH. Who on earth is stupid enough to think the weight is water with the baby? Now we know the answer.

        I don’t even think Our lady of Cheetos did that when she was pregnant. That’s saying something. At least I got big on really good food, sweets, even the smell made me throw up during my pregnancies. Which is a very strange thing, because really good chocolate and I had a good relationship until then.

        bluhare – any time.

        By the way, nice to see YOU got an apology.

    Swiss and Cheddar (colby) tastes like Velvetta.. makes a nicer cheesy sauce base too..

  34. tia says:

    DUDE!! You couldn’t shave and put on something nicer than say whatever the hell you have on? Like you threw something on to go get the mail or run to the drugstore.. seriously wtf is wrong w/ dudes?

  35. melissa says:

    Black. The oldest trick in the book. Did she really think she was fooling anyone? All I can say is I am her height, and I KNOW what weight looks like on a 5’4″ person. My best guess? She is 170 right NOW! I’d bet my slutty brownie on it.

  36. Lindsey says:

    Dem boobies…sure are huge.

  37. mayamae says:

    “During pregnancy, I didn’t really think about it,” she told the talk show host of her expanding figure. “I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke my whole entire stomach would go down but that did not happen. All the weight did not come out with the baby!”

    She cannot possibly be this stupid.

  38. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    She looks great imo. It seems like shes always hanging onto to someone and that is annoying.

  39. Shelly says:

    She looked great on tv, her outfit was very flattering. But her hair was the weirdest and whitest shade of blonde. The hair was a little much!

  40. G says:

    What’s unfortunate is the need to monetize EVERYTHING. Couldn’t she just do whatever she was going to do in private? Ugh.

    Secondly, the fact that she made this stupid deal does not mean that it’s OK for everyone to bash women and their weight. Two very sad trends.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Nobody’s bashing her for gaining weight, they’re bashing her for being a moron, or just pretending to be a moron (not sure which is worse).

      Which leads me to this: I agree that we shouldn’t bash women for their weight but I also think that you’re not doing any overweight person any favors by pretending that they’re not responsible for what they put in their body.
      In fact, I think that all you do is disempower them by giving them a free pass and acting they’re not accountable for their weight gain**.

      **This is regarding diet/lack of exercise, not women who gain weight due to medical issues (that’s another story altogether).

    • Allie May says:

      I agree! She would have appeared far more intelligent and classy if she had kept her mouth shut regarding her daily diet and not accepted a contract to profit from her weight loss after having a child. What has happened to privacy and keeping your business to yourself?

  41. Mar says:

    I don’t feel bad for her one bit. She will do anything for money-
    She decided to exploit her weight-not us!!!

    Her hair is ratchet

  42. Miss Thang says:

    This chick so so dumb. She thought she was gaining 50lbs of water??? And was she carrying that water in her face and arms and legs?? Seriously, Jess, you cannot be that dumb.
    Also, just must just not care about her baby’s health at all if this is how she was eating for the whole pregnancy. I mean, seriously! The nutrition you recieve in nthe womb has the largest effect on your lifelong health. Surely she’s not really this dumb, right? Right?…

  43. HillbillyintheCorner says:

    Sorry Jessica…but you look like a junior version of Wynonna Judd..just blonde instead of Red…
    and she is short waisted…and that means there is no way in hell she’s that flat after 4 months post baby…besides her huge boobies look at her legs….they dont lie ..
    She is spandexed up tighter then a tick…..a good 160 right now is my guess and I’m a good guesser…..
    But Ladies with 4 million dollars on the line I would be trussed up like a turkey at Thankgiving….myself…LOL
    Poor girl doesn’t she realize that her pre baby body is dead and gone never to return…the boobie will always be different expectly since she nursing the baby…and as big as he baby was her hipbones will never move back to the pre baby shape… and the only way her stomach will be tight again is by surgery…just like Jennifer Hudson had…now that girl has been pulled in so tight all over she every gain weight again she will split like a overstuffed sauage skin…LOL

  44. Brit says:

    Look, I applaud her for all of her efforts in dropping the weight, but let’s be honest. She was FAR heavier than 170, and that is not a 40 pound loss. I’m 180 and I’m much smaller than she was at her heaviest.

    If she’s trying to be a role model for “real women,” it’s unfair of her to lie about where she started and her actual progress. I think someone already mentioned here that she may be 170 NOW. I don’t understand why she feels the need to lie about it.

    On top of the lies about her weight, and the loss, she’s wearing a dress with a peplum, which is purposefully hiding her abdomen where most of her weight was carried. It defeats the purpose of a “big reveal” if you hide everything and lie about your progress. And her Weight Watchers commercial? You only see her from the chest up… Also defeats the purpose.

    It’s great she’s working at it, but even with a $4m contract, you should be honest. That’s false advertising for the company, and they should, quite honestly, be kind of ashamed.

  45. Starsky says:

    I think she’s lost 25 pounds max. Which you know, it might take a while for her. We give celebs such grief for dropping the weight so quick or working out 6 hours a day (kate hudson!) right after childbirth and yet when someone does it the slow and steady way we give them problems too.

    She looks like the average woman these days and I think that outfit looks cute. Jessica Simpson seems like a nice person compared to other celebs of her heydey (Xtina, Leann etc) so I dont understand the hate for her.

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      You probably have never met her. She was at a festival where 98degrees was playing back in the day as was my husband.

      Can you say stupid, jealous bitch? Fit her to a T.

      • littlestar says:

        Really Tiffany??? You need to give more details! Haha. Even though I agree with everyone that Jessica is lying about her weight loss, a part of me always wanted to believe that she is a sweet girl (stupid, but sweet). I guess I watched too much Newlyweds back in the day (btw, I still believe the only thing that will save Jessica is Nick Lachey).

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I hate spilling, not really, but because of the people who rag on me for doing so.

        Anyway it was wanton tango and before her and Nick got married. So, maybe she’s more mature, but I doubt more Intelligent.

        My SIL and i are there, and so is Simp. I’m there for hubby as a wife, she is there as a GF. She spent the entire day acting like hot shit, complete bitch. She spent the whole day glaring at us and saying nasty, stupid things as if I was there to steal her Nick.

        Doing the you don’t know how important I am, you do t know me, thing. You don’t want to be followed all day in the hot sun by a psychotic blonde who imagines you are stalking her man and dissing her. Dumb as a bag of rocks.

        The really funny thing is that I was pregnant and sick the entire day, not really BF stealing feeling, you know? Not as evil as Sheryl Crow who I knew really well back in the day, but she was a menacing child all day long

      • Littlestar says:

        That is way too good! Thanks so much for spilling your secrets :D .

    • Miss Kiki says:

      OTiff- That sounds juicy, please spill!!

  46. Kids0036 says:

    This woman/child is possibly the most annoying celebrity, next to Kim K. She whines about publicity and negative comments, yet has a “fashion” line she promotes and a weight deal to promote as well for…money. It’s called how she makes her living. Promote = publicity. Comprende?? Deal with it.

  47. chaine says:

    doesn’t it look like her fiance is the same guy as Britney Spears’ fiance?

  48. Maritza says:

    I’m glad she is losing weight, she is very pretty although her hair looks so over processed.

  49. julie says:

    Honestly I think the whole weight loss thing is ridiculous. She thought all the weight would come off when she gave birth? Does she have a brain? I wouldn’t be surprised if she has had some lypo on her stomach (i read that somewhere) but this girl is big. No way that she only has 10 pounds to go.

  50. whatev says:

    She has an opportunity to really promote WW here. I’ve been a member of WW and it is NOT about how fast you lose weight. It’s about eating healthier than you had been and changing your LIFEstyle. It’s a shame that the real value of WW is seldom what their selling point is. Sometimes you don’t loose weight quickly and you can be discouraged BUT you can go to a meeting and be encouraged and realize that loosing .2 pounds a week will eventually get you where you want to be so don’t give up. It’s a shame that Jessica Simpson isn’t promoting that aspect of weight watchers considering she’s still VERRY overweight. I just saw her outside of GMA and TRUST, she’s not 10 pounds away from pre-preggo weight.

    • Diana says:

      Did you even watch the Katie Couric interview? Because that’s pretty much what she promoted in a nutshell. Its just the internet is more focused on how big she does or doesn’t look. Kinda like you just did at the end of your comment.

      • whatev says:

        Actually, she went on Katie Couric’s show and lied about her weight (let’s be real), lied about the motivations behind the directorial style of the WW ad, and lied about believing all the weight was water and would come off after she had the baby. I’m not body shaming her at all. I think her body is hers, and however she chooses to live in it is fine with me. I was talking about WW selling points. It starts with standing on a scale and getting REAL with yourself and getting real about how t lose weight. I LOVE WW! I lost 70 pounds of post preg weig on the plan. I find Jessica Simpson’s public persona charming and all but “I’m just Jessica” give me a BREAK! They could be doing a much better ad campaign with her. If they would just do an honest one.

  51. Diana says:

    I saw her interview and I thought she looked great. The only number she gave was confirming Katie’s comment that it was more than 40 lbs and since we didn’t see her at her final weight, that could very well be true. I really hope she continues to ignore the tabloid negativity and keeps working towards her goal.

    She had a baby 4 months ago by C-section which rules out exercising for at least 6 weeks so realistically, she’s been working on this for 2 and a half months? And we’re already calling her a failure? Give a girl a break.

  52. paranormalgirl says:

    Weight Watchers is a great program. Glad she’s losing weight and getting healthier.

  53. Annie says:

    Ugh, no way in hell was she only 170lb. I’m 130lb, and believe me, she would have made more than 2 of me in those photos of her just after the baby, granted I’m a few inches taller, but still. She HAD to have topped 200lb, I bet about 220. That said, she is losing weight and seems to be doing it the healthy way without starving herself, I just wish she wouldn’t make such obvious lies.

  54. littlemissnaughty says:

    She really needs to talk to Christina Hendricks about a bra because it looks like the shape of this one is not all that great.
    The hair … Jesus, the hair. It looks so cheap I have to click away now.

  55. bk says:

    Ugh I though this was a pic of donatella versace when I was glancing through the thumbnails. I don’t understand this girl’s coloring scheme lately.

  56. Apsutter says:

    She is definitely playing fast and loose with those numbers! She looks like she weighs between 140 and 150 right now and she was so big during her pregnancy. There’s no way that she didn’t go into the 200′s late in that pregnancy. And I love her weight watchers commercial that only shows her head lol

  57. Amanda G says:

    10lbs away my ass! Girlfriend had to be at least 200lbs at her highest weight. She looks 150lbs now. I’m not saying she looks bad or that her weight loss isn’t awesome, but at least be honest about it if you’re carrying around a $4 million check.

  58. Memphis says:

    Dear Jess,

    Please stop trying to play us, it isn’t working.

    Please stop the played out “I’m just a dumb country girl that didn’t know any better”routine. What you are is a mega-rich woman with access to the best medical care on the planet who chose to stuff herself with oreos and cookie dough and now wants to act innocent and claim those high priced doctors are to blame because they told you “it’s fine … its all water! ” BS


    You wanted to ate and you damn well knew it wasn’t all water weight. And I’m positive your doctors told you the dangers of all that weight and “water” …We are not stupid so please stop treating us a such.

    The world.

    P.S You have the means and money to look beautiful..please stop with the hooker hair.

  59. bcgirl says:

    Any of you commenters ever had a c-section? It takes a few months to recover just from that. It’s also often psychologically devastating to women who prepared for 9 months for a natural birth.
    But you’re right, she deserves to be punished for not getting skinny really fast for all of you.

    • Elise says:

      Yes: I had an unplanned, emergency c-section nine weeks ago after 18 hours of labor. I had no expectation of this and had not prepared for it; I cried when they wheeled me into the ER out of sheer exhaustion, fear and sadness, and it was a very rough recovery, physically worse than psychologically. I happened to lose most of the weight due to the massive pain, digestive issues, rashes, hormones, lack of sleep etc. that put me off food for a few weeks because I felt horrible. I have a tiny fraction of the resources Jessica has, but I’m not sitting moaning on TV about it after taking on a public, $4M endorsement deal. I don’t have a nanny, trainer, millions in the bank, an unemployed husband, chef, personal asst, I could go on. I’ve been to the gym twice, I just walk every day with the stroller. My weight has stalled for the last month since I got back my appetite, and it’s tough! I could give a s*** about JS’ weight, just stop selling us a bill of goods that we aren’t buying! That’s my issue w/her.

    • Memphis says:

      Its not that she isn’t getting skinny fast enough that people take issue with…I mean, hell yes it takes some time! We all agree on that.

      Its the playing dumb, the I didn’t know it wasn’t all baby, my doctors told me it was nothing but water, and now I’m going to lie about it all…. that people don’t like.

      I like Jessica but I don’t believe anything she is saying and for her to act like we should is insulting.

      If she wants to eat, gain 100 lbs and then lose it…fine…her body her choice…but don’t blow smoke up my arse ..OWN YOUR SH*T!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @Memphis-EXACTLY. Nobody gives a sh*t about how long it takes her to lose the weight. People take issue with the fact that she pretends that she has no idea how it happened.

        I don’t GAF what she eats when she’s pregnant-she can eat pizza and cupcakes all day-that’s her choice. Just don’t pretend that you can eat junk food without any repercussions.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      She deserves to be punished for making it an issue and taking $4 million snd claiming she is not a super model but “just Jessica”. THAT is what pissed me off, to be honest. The “Just Jessica” part who has no access to a trainer and personal chef and an unemployed husband and all that.

      “Just Jessica” would be dealing with it slowly like Elise is below and her friends would be cheering her on and telling her how well she is doing and reminding her that she had major surgery and that it takes a long time to heal. I’ve never had a C-section. I have friends who have.

      PS: Go Elise. You are beautiful no matter what.

  60. sweetshell says:

    Ya, what’s up with the dressed like a bumb boyfriend? C’mon, tuck the shirt in or take the hat off! Geez!

  61. supervisor says:

    i bet she is wearing a corset under the dress.

  62. ER says:

    If she was 170 at her heaviest and she’s supposedly lost 40 pounds since May, then that would make her 130 and she looks a bit heavier than 130, more like 140+.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I believe she lost 40lbs. I can see it below the boobs. I believe she is working out, I see more tone in her legs. I also think she *currently* weighs 170 and is about 30-40 lbs away from her pre baby weight. She is half way there.

      In short, she’s lost a healthy amount of weight for the time period but she still has a way to go. There is no shame in that and WW shouldn’t be hiding it. She is doing what they say they want – 1 to 2 lbs loss per week.

      I thought she was with Jenny – in which case her weight loss would be “shameful” if you starve you should lose 70lbs in 4-6 months but WW is supposed to be slow.

  63. ruby says:

    Why so orange ??? and the boobs look painful to me too.

  64. carol says:

    velvetta is terrible cheese made in a lab. it’s good w/ hot Rotel. It’s also bad cuz it will make you fat real quick. I splur on it rarely. it is absolultely a health breaker.

  65. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I don’t believe a word this dumb chick says. I’m so glad that others are starting to see the light and not are believing every word that falls out of her derp mouth.

  66. the original bellaluna says:

    I’m sorry, did she really say she thought the weight was a lot of water that she believed would what? Cascade out in some sort of Amniotic Fluid Tsunami during labour?

    I mean, water retention involves more than just amniotic fluid, and it can take days or weeks for retained fluid to work its way out of the body.

  67. JRenee says:

    The fiancee looks like he just rolled out of bed. Her hair looks bleached to within an inch of it’s life.She looks like she is strapped/spanx’d to within an inch of life. I do believe she may be fudging the pre-pregnancy weight abit but she was not thin when she became pregnant…
    I do wish her well :-)

  68. someone says:

    She has always said she was 170 at the Elle shoot, which was when she was 6 months pregnant. I’ve seen several articles that say she was 210 when she gave birth. That means if she truly lost 40 pounds she is 170 right now. I think that is accurate. What’s throwing everyone off is her claim of being 10 pounds shy of her pre-pregnancy weight. If that were true she’d have been 160 when she got pregnant. That seems far fetched to me. I think she was maybe 145 pre pregnancy.
